Congregational Care

Congregational Care

The Congregational Care Committee shares in the celebrations and concerns of the congregation.  It is a vital part of our community of faith – changing lives by responding to the special needs of our Immanuel family.

You can submit a Prayer Request, or email Pastor Aaron Fulp-Eickstaedt.

The Committee’s primary focus is ministering to the individual needs of those in the congregation.

When members are ill, grieving or in some other personal distress, the Committee

  • Makes personal visits
  • Sends notes of sympathy, cheer or understanding
  • Delivers sunshine baskets
  • Provides food to those recovering from illness or injury
  • Delivers flowers from the sanctuary
  • Provides transportation to appointments and worship
  • Sponsors a prayer chain
  • Hosts a reception following a funeral or memorial service

To celebrate life’s milestones and other special days, the Committee

  • Provides a rosebud on the communion table to celebrate the birth of a child or grandchild
  • Provides special occasion remembrances as an expression of love and understanding
  • Supports our confirmands by providing a meal during the confirmand process

The Committee also:

  • Provides pamphlets on life issues at the entrance of the Sanctuary
  • Sponsors blood drives
  • Maintains Immanuel’s End of Life Planning Guide
  • Interacts with the Prayer Shawl Ministry, which makes and distributes prayer shawls to those with illness or grief
  • Offers training on how to minister to those who are ill or grieving
  • Oversees Immanuel’s new Healthcare Navigation Team

The Committee meets on the first Wednesday of the month at 6:00 p.m.  For further information, please contact Nina Toups or the church office.
